I have lived here since I was a teenager, and I have probably passed by this Sacramento chiropractor clinic hundreds if not thousands of times. I never in a million years thought I would need a chiropractor. However, my wife and I took a ski trip and I hurt my back. I have always been in great shape. I have good genetics and an interest in physical activity. If you had asked me prior to going to a chiropractor what type of people I thought would use their services, I would have guessed most to be overweight and out of shape.
Don’t get me wrong. I do not tell anyone how they should look or how active they should be. Everyone can make their own choice. Most of my friends have plenty of extra padding. I do not look down on them for it. I just thought that people who hurt their backs were more likely to not do any athletic things. I was wrong. It turns out that people in great shape who are highly athletic have a lot of injuries. They use chiropractors and other doctors to get from injury back to athletic activity. That is what I needed.
I twisted my back and knew something had happened. It did not start to really hurt until the next day. We were on our return flight home since I got hurt on the last day of our ski trip. That evening I spent a lot of time in the hot tub trying to loosen things up. My medical doctor could not find anything by testing, but I can tell you it hurt really bad. The Sacramento chiropractor office I used to pass by every day was now my friend who was helping me recover from the injury. Not only that, they helped me strengthen my back to support the activities I enjoy.
